RHI Magnesita share price will be in focus today.

Yesterday, RHI Magnesita India shares hit a record high after the company announced acquisition of the Indian refractory business of Dalmia Bharat Refractories for Rs 17.1 bn.

Through the consolidation of DBRL's production into RHI Magnesita's existing operations, the management believes that significant network optimisation synergies will be captured. Moreover, the acquisition would add production capacities in important industrial regions in the southern and western regions of India where RHI Magnesita currently has no assets.

Market participants will also track the share price of Jet Airways.

The future of Jet Airways 2.0 will depend on the outcome of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) hearing on 29 November, as the airline's winning bidder Jalan-Kalrock Consortium and financial creditors await clarity on whether ownership can be transferred on the basis of bank guarantees worth Rs 1.5 bn.

MF Activity Slows Down

Reportedly, lump sum gross inflows into the equity segment, excluding new fund offers (NFOs), stood at Rs 179 bn in October, the lowest since November 2020.

The slowdown has been on account of large high net worth individuals (HNIs) waiting for a better entry point as the equity market is close to a new high, weakness in flows from lower-end customers in rural areas, and reduced NFO activity by large fund houses in the equity segment.

Over the past couple of months, a few major trends have emerged: resurgence of NFOs in Q2 during the financial year 2022-23 after a hiatus, steady trends in overall AUM, sustained high outflows from the debt segment, and new highs in monthly SIP inflows.

High net worth individuals (HNIs) have shown a rising propensity towards investing in the passive segment, driven by the formalization of their investment process as the next generation takes over.

HNIs also prefer to invest in alternate assets (such alternative investment funds and portfolio management services) as they offered relatively better returns in the past couple of years. This, despite the high cost that HNIs have to bear, when compared with mutual funds.

With the RBI raising interest rates (by 190 basis points over the past seven months), fixed deposit rates have moved higher. Traditional fixed income products may attract attention now.

Institutions are also considering investments in fixed deposits and non-convertible debentures (NCDs) versus debt funds to avoid a notable mark-to-market impact.
